I have recently bought an AKG Perception 120 microphone and plan on recording through GarageBand on my Macbook Pro, but no sound is coming through. please help!

You say you have a XLR to USB the version of the 120 you have is the regular XLR version, right? Well if it is, it needs what's called "phantom power" to work. It looks like they have a straight USB version of this mic, and that's what you should have gotten if you didn't want to use anything else. If you still want to use this mic as is, I would recommend a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. I have one and it's great. I do have a pc though and I'm not sure about Mac. But it's a usb powered preamp that gives you two mic pre's along with headphone amp, and a volume control for your speakers and has phantom power built in. Great unit and around $120. NFI.

BM-700 studio mic not working

I've had many problems with macs and AUX Input before. For some reason, some macs don't accept audio input from AUX. There are some dongles you can get that turn AUX to USB, I used that for my Mac Mini and it worked perfectly. You can find some cheap adapters online, I highly recommend you look up iMic, that's what I used. 4_27_2014_4_22_44_pm.png

What is the best way to run the mic on desktop

Your condensor mic requires special electrical handling usually reserved for proffesional audio equipment, not a PC. You will need two pieces of equipment, a short XLR cable and an adapter cable.
1) Behringer PS400 Ultra-Compact Phantom Power Supply.
This will supply the mic with necessary Phantom Power.
2) Rapco Horizon ISOBLOX Transformer Isolation 1:1 BLOX Device
This will isolate the Phantom Power from your computer, allowing it to work as necessary.
The adaptor connector cable you need will be a female XLR (with pins 1 and 3 shorted, pin 2 hot), through a cable connect to a 1/8" mini plug. They connect in that order with a short XLR cable between 1) and 2). .

I am using pro tools 8 LE. I have a blue bluebird condenser microphone. the cable going into the mic is a male 3 pronged end. and the end going into my avid mbox mini is a normal ending (the ones that look...

The mbox mini is usb powered, wont work without power so your mac or pc must be powered on and connected. The blue led will be on when powered. Assuming you have the the appropriate cables, you want to make sure the condenser is plugged into the Mic/Line input. (Input 1 on the back of the mbox mini). All condenser mics require phantom power, so engage the +48V switch. Also make sure the DI (direct input) switch is not engaged. The input gain control is located on the front of the mbox... There needs to be speakers connected to the 1/4 output jacks on the back of the mbox or headphones on the front for sound output. Use the large knob for monitor volume control.
In protools: Create a Stereo Master fader track
Create a mono audio track
Set the input of the mono audio track to Mic/Line 1 Arm the track for record (click & make sure the R is red)
You should getting levels and sound output from your condenser.

Mic to PC

This mic is a condenser type microphone. It needs phantom power (48v) to operate. Might want to buy a USB mic preamplifier box, like an M-Audio product, which will provide phantom power, xlr/1/4 inch inputs and USB output.

How do u get hsm wii microphone to work on

well ..i cant see what type of conection you mic has and what you really want to achieve as far as quality of sound or ultimate use.., are some ideas.. A mic needs a pre amp and that is often built into some cheap but usable mini mixers made by behringer..You could pick up one and a good cheap dynamic mic[dynamic mics are best close to the sound source] with a lead and then go from the main output of the little mixer to the audio input of the computer.. A second but easier way and one that could give very good results is purchase a USB input microphone and this will have mic pre amp built in so it just plugs into your computer usb port.. SE electronics ,Rode make brilliant ones that are used often for podcasting..[well worth the +-100 uk pounds] but i am confident that berhinger will make a usable model for much less money[these type usb condensers will be sensitive and give clear results]...

How to use a condenser mic on a mac/in garageband?


If you are sure that the microphone and the cable is OK, it could be that you're phantompower is to low.
Normally you need 48 Volt, you can check that with voltage meter between pin1-2 and 1-3 from the XLR.

Rode NT2 got Phantom!

Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.
